BLACK Lives Matter campaigners in Stourbridge are continuing their fight against racism by staging weekly gatherings in the town.

The movement, which has been raising its profile and staging protests across the world since the tragic death of George Floyd in America, staged a demonstration with more than 200 people in Stourbridge on Saturday June 13 and since then supporters of BLM have continued to gather in the town on Wednesday evenings at 6pm to show their solidarity with victims of racism around the world.

Activists are set to meet again tonight at 6pm by the town clock and every Wednesday evening for the foreseeable future to continue to raise awareness and maintain a visible presence in the community.

Claire Betson, Stourbridge BLM supporter, said: “We continue to take the knee as an expression of solidarity with victims of systemic racism.

"This will be a weekly event to show our commitment to strive for change.

"We are keeping the momentum going by coming together as a community and saying very clearly that racism has no part in our local community and in wider society.”
